Name:samvara
Birthdate:Jun 21
Location:Perth, Western Australia, Australia
I'm in IT, but the chatty part to do with program and project management, and business analysis not the coding part. I'm a relentless, lemming-like volunteer but have been scaling back for the last couple of years to do a part time MBA.

My adored fannish project has been working with Accessibility, Design, & Technology (AD&T), the Committee designing and building the Archive of Our Own (AO3) as a project of The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW). Yeah, acronyms are weirdly attractive after all that. The short version of what that is and what it means to me is on the AO3 in story form because while I don't really identify as a writer I can do a pretty mean cracktastic collage.

I'm posting to DW only but left my entries from when I stopped crossposting on LJ. I still read on LJ although I use a filter.

My actual bio: Born. And quite a shock it was too - parents were living in a tiny town called Bethany and I was all set to be the second coming when they noticed it didn't have a hospital and decamped to Tanunda. Spent the next four years in a rural Gnostic Christian commune (failed to become a Christian) - terrible thing to do to an innocent toddler but great opportunity to catch frogs and fail to milk goats correctly. Was exposed to a great deal of alternative religions, lifestyles and persons. Rebelled by becoming a business systems analyst. Hah! Take that parentals.

I live in a queer feminist commune with my three other beloveds. I geek. I get dreadfully excited about science trivia, TV shows and really good typos. I hike, kayak and rogaine, I have TWO dogs that I adore. I don't think it's possible to own too many books but have largely switched to ebooks. I collect random crap, friends, toys, and brightly coloured things. I flap my hands when I think something is really funny. I take photos of flowers and bugs (my holiday photos are terrible), I can draw but my humans always look like kangaroos.
